06. OSCAR'S FILE RENAMER lets you globally rename files, add sequential numbering (or even words) to the file names, change the extension, and undo accidental modifications.

07. GOOD50 is a search engine for us folks with poorer eyesight. The text font is larger and it also has a high contrast version and even saves energy on a CRT monitor.
